We found we had to upgrade from a standard room as the double beds were just too small and we are by no means large! They were almost king single size! We also had a car and parking was pricy approx. $50 per day. Overall ok, but would not return due to price. Oh and the concierge was great, very... More

We overnights in San Francisco and stayed at the Handlery. It is a large hotel, extremely well located very near to Union Square, Powell St and the Powell St Station. we caught the BART in from the airport which is quick and cheap for a return ticket. The hotel has a great breakfast included in the price but unfortunately we... More

Great location. Nicely furnished room, including mini-fridge. If you are sensitive to city noise, you may want to request one overlooking the pool area, or rooms closer to Mason Street. I was on the 2nd floor overlooking Geary street. I was able to hear a lot of city noise until about 2am or so. The parking lot is convenient and... More

We had a fabulous stay here. Tom the Bellman was friendly and helpful on arrival with our bags. All the women on the Reception desk could smile a little as they were extremely cold and it was like asking a question was putting them out even when checking in. The included breakfast was delicious and the location was perfect. Close... More

Stayed here recently on vacation with my 2 sisters. We hadn't been to SF in several years, so while we knew we wanted to stay in the downtown area, I was unsure of which hotel. The large chain hotels generally seem impersonal and not really what we were looking for. The Handlery Hotel was recommended by my AAA agent. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting San Francisco. No problems at check-in. Room was in the historic section and looked out onto Geary St. but was not noisy. Bathroom was quite small but was clean and fully functioning. Breakfast was included in our rate and was served in the Daily Grill restaurant which is next door. Hotel is in... More

I have stayed at many of the hotels in Union Square area and this one is great for couples and families. It is intimate and easy to access. It is very clean and the rooms are up to date with flat screens. If you get one of the larger rooms it is convenient for a family. There is a very... More

We stayed here for three nights before we started our driving holiday. It was easy to get around San Francisco from this starting point, in walking distance to a lot of areas of interest and also right on the cable car line if you wanted to go further afield. We were in one of the rooms at the rear of... More
